In January, more than 460,000 ETH was secured in ICO treasury wallets, with a total value of more than $6 billion prior to the massive drop-off in price. The current ETH balance stands at 3,085,376, which is roughly equal to $350 million.
Since January the average monthly withdrawal has been around 2.45%, but December’s total amounts to roughly 11.25% of the current holdings. November was previously the largest month of withdrawals this year thanks to an 82,000 ETH drawdown by Tezos (XTZ).
